    Fermentation Temperature

    Agreed. Underneath my steps is about 65 and fluctuates 2 degrees on either side. Swamp cooler it is for me!

    Northern Brewer EPA 1040

    I've brewed this one a couple of times and I have to say it is a really solid and easy recipe. Definitely worth getting if you like EPA's. Here is some info on it. So that brings me to an extract Northern Brewer Pale Ale kit that I brewed up a couple months ago. I’ve done this recipe twice...

    Interesting. Wish they would put what's in the kit on the web page or allow me to download it so I can see what's in it :)

    Beer After Three Days - Bell's Oberon Review

    What was your clone recipe? Was it all grain? I'm thinking about doing the same thing, but I'm an extract / specialty grains guy for now. Thanks man!

    Beer After Three Days - Bell's Oberon Review

    I came out of institutionalization today to a drizzly mid day. I have to be honest, it was exactly how I felt. Things have been depressing and quite frankly, crappy all around. But I was struck with a realization that pierced my brain and instantly cheered me up. I had been on a three day hiatus...

    Was in Japan - Hard Time Finding Beer

    Sounds like when my friend comes to visit in December I should ask if she would bring me some Hitachino stuff. I do have to agree that of all the mass produced stuff I like the Yebisu stuff the most. They had a Creamy Stout that was pretty good. Might have been because I hadn't had anything but...

    Was in Japan - Hard Time Finding Beer

    I went to Japan a couple weeks ago to visit and see the country. I wasn't there on any beer related quests or anything, but I did notice it was hard to find anything for and for a decent price. So I've started a "guide" on my blog hoping to help anyone that is looking in the future. Check it...

    How to Brew by John Palmer

    Just finished reading a copy I purchased as well. Figured I'd post my thoughts in this thread. Seems to be the place for it, if not pull it out. Review of “How to Brew” by John Palmer If you recall I did an intro review of "How to Brew by John Palmer where I talked about how the book...

    Wort Cooling Method...??

    You make a great point. Now, and in the future water is going to become more and more scarce. I once heard WWIII is going to be fought over water, not oil... I may have to give it a try. I would assume if your sanitation is awesome, there won't be any side effects. I also like the real wort...

    Wort Cooling Method...??

    That looks really really interesting. I like the idea of the "Real Wort" starter. This facilitates a way to do that. Have you tried it?
